Netflix announces Cuphead cartoon series

Saucers close to production say.

Cuphead, the video game designed to look like a cartoon, is now getting a cartoon series based on it.

Netflix has picked up the rights to produce a Cuphead animated series with the look of the game's 1930s classic Fleischer cartoons remaining intact.

It's being helmed by the Emmy and Annie award-winning Dave Wasson, who has worked as director on Disney's Mickey Mouse Shorts series which similarly evokes the style of early animation.

In a statement today, Netflix said the show would be a "character-driven comedy" which follows the "unique misadventures of the impulsive Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman".

There's nothing else to show right now - your favourite steaming service has not released a tea-ser trailer - but here's hoping it's spout soon.
